2019 PXG 0311 ST: Precision defined in a fully milled iron



After a lot of speculation, including by yours truly, it’s official: Parsons Xtreme Golf is releasing the fully milled 2019 PXG 0311 ST irons to the public in 2019.

Known for its meticulous engineering and manufacturing processes, the company is taking it to the next level with the introduction of the 2019 PXG 0311 ST irons. Building off the success of the milled wedges, the ST (Super Tour) irons are 100 percent milled from a triple-forged billets of 8620 soft carbon steel.

The strong, yet “soft” 8620 helps prolong the life of the grooves compared to other softer steels often used by other manufacturers, and it sacrifices nothing when it comes to feel or performance. Since they are milled start to finish, the human element for error has been eliminated—every surface, curve, and draft angle are produced to exacting specifications to ensure each and every iron head built exactly as it should be.

Even though the 2019 PXG 0311 ST is a pure blade iron, it still features PXG’s signature Perimeter Weighting Technology, which utilizes small tungsten screws around the perimeter of the head. All of this in a smaller package with a narrow sole, and compact heel-to-toe blade length for added workability.

Compared to every other iron in the PXG lineup, the 2019 PXG 0311 ST Blade has the highest CG (center of gravity) to offer better players lower launch and more spin—the type of control demanded by the best players in the world.

Although you won’t be able to just walking into a retailer and grab a set off the wall, PXG is offering golfers the opportunity to reserve their set beginning August 12th.

Each set of 100 percent milled custom will be built from scratch and priced at $650 a stick. Based on the time involved, sets are expected to start shipping in late September.

    I love that companies are skyrocketing prices while moving towards 8620 carbon steel and then trying to convince you that it’s better. PING Blueprint, PXG (any of them), and maybe others all using a cheaper, harder steel and yet charging you out the nose for it. At these prices these should be fully milled from 1015 carbon steel.

    I loved the look of these back in late 90’s when Mizuno released them as the “T-Zoid True” irons. Golf has become nothing more than people copying past designs, slapping a premium price on it and calling it innovative.

    Can someone try and explain to be why, after a millennia of ‘hand made’ being a selling point, they’re using a CNCd block of a metal as a justification for a super premium price point?

    I never understood how Bob Parsons could bring out an iron that only sponsored players or top winning players could afford. Now he’s trying to reach out to us average joes…not sure where that’s going. If it has PGX name on it…you will need a second mortgage to pay for it. Nobody makes golf clubs that expensive other than Miura and PXG!

      I bought a set of Miuras that were 9.5 mint and never hit from 2nd Swing for $650, they perform amazing and feel amazing. I can’t see ever spending the same for one club.

    Pushing the boundaries of how expense can we make a chunk of metal at the end of shaft to new limits. Congratulations PXG!

Forum Thread of the Day: “Your last ever set of irons?”



Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Nickc who asks fellow WRXers what they would choose if their next set of irons were the last clubs they could use. Some of our members mention a range of different irons which they would love to splash out on, while others choose between a set of clubs already in their possession.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • cfasucks: “If I had only 1 set to play with for the rest of my life it would probably be my 845s. They are great feeling and forgiving when I’m not at the top of my game, and they’re built like tanks.”
  • kekoa: “At this point, I’d have to choose Seven MB’s. At a price tag of about $4,000 4-PW I wouldn’t be able to afford another set.”
  • bodhi555: “That would be my VR Pros, as they do everything I need an iron to do. Feel awesome, let me get away with not being precisely on the centre of the face, look great and seem to go as far as some distance irons I’ve tried.”
  • Lumberjack627: “Think I’m going to get 790s, and that would be it for me.”

Top 10 most iconic driver and fairway wood shafts of all time



fujikura golf shaft

If there is one thing we love as golf gear junkies, it’s driver (and fairway wood) shafts!

From the early years to today’s modern designs, materials, and profiles, there are some shafts that have maintained steady popularity—like a Ping Eye 2 lob wedge. There are a lot of graphite shafts that have stood the test of time, and they bring back memories of great driver combos gone by.

This is my top 10 list (in no particular order) of the most iconic driver shafts of all time.

Fujikura 757 Speeder

Fujikura golf shaft

Launched more than two decades ago, you could arguably say it’s the shaft that started the shaft craze. Built from advanced materials in a profile that was designed to work for stabilizing larger driver heads of the time—you know when 300cc was HUGE. The Speeder 757 was an instant hit among PGA Tour players, most notably Fred Couples, who used the shaft for over a decade and was said to have at one point remove all the remaining stock from one of the equipment vans for his personal use.

Aldila NV

Aldila NV Green golf shaft

One of the very first “low-spin monsters,” the Aldila NV took the PGA Tour and retail by storm when it was introduced. The unique green paint made it easily recognizable, and thanks to the many weights it was offered in, it was just as popular in fairway woods as it was in drivers. Honorable mention goes to its cousin the NVS (orange version) that was softer in profile and easier to launch. At a time when most off the rack drivers had three shaft options (low, medium, and high flight-promoting shafts), the NV was the staple as the low-launch option in many OEM offerings.

Mitsubishi Diamana Blue Board

Diamana Blue Board - Tiger shaft

Originally very hard to find, the Diamana Blue Board was a shaft that fit a large variety of golfers. Its name was derived from the blue oval that surrounded the “Diamana” on the all silver/ion painted shaft. Just like others on the list, the Blue Board came in a variety of weight options and was made particularly popular by Tiger Woods. Best known by most shaft junkies as being extremely smooth, it is one of the first sought after shafts in the aftermarket.

True Temper EI-70

True temper graphite EI70

It’s hard to picture a classic 900 series Titleist Driver without an EI-70 shaft in it. The EI-70 was lower torque—when that was a big talking point in shaft design—and it had a fairly stout profile, which in turn made it very stable. Unlike others on the list, it was much more subdued as far as its paint and graphics, but the green shaft was a mainstay for many years on tour and in the bags or recreational golfers.

Graphite Design Tour AD DI-6/7

Tour AD Di7 Tiger orange shaft

It’s hard to figure out if it was the design and performance of the shaft or the performance of a certain golfer (a certain Mr. Woods) that to this day makes the Tour AD DI-7 so popular. Painted BRIGHT orange with a bend profile that offered a lot of stability and playability for a variety of player types, it can still be spotted on tour every week. You could call the DI-7 the grandchild of the YS6/7, which should also get an honorable mention for its well documented smooth feel.

UST ProForce

UST golf shaft gold graphite

The aptly nicknamed “Lakers Shaft” because of its original gold and purple paint job, this was another shaft that was just as popular at the retail level as it was on the PGA Tour. As driver head sizes were going up (400cc ), players were looking for stability and this offered it. The most notable player to use it was Jim Furyk, who won the 2003 U.S. Open with one in the bag.

Grafalloy Blue

Blue graphite shaft stenson

Henrik Stenson and the Grafalloy Blue in his 3-wood. Name a more iconic duo…(I’ll wait). An updated and stiffer version of the Prolite, the Blue stood out for a couple reasons—its color, and its extremely low torque. Most golfers wouldn’t consider the Blue a very smooth feeling shaft, because it took a lot of speed and a quick tempo to maximize its performance, but it did birth another shaft for average player: the Prolaunch Blue, which is still available to this day.

Matrix Ozik TP7HD

1000 golf shaft Matrix

$1,100 bucks! That was the original asking price for the Martix Ozik TP7HD. Matrix thought of this design as a concept car of shafts and threw everything they had at it including exotic materials like Zylon, and the fact that it was wrapped on a 16-sided hexadecagon mandrel. Some golfers said it had a fluid-like feel (we golfers can sure be weirdly descriptive) but it still had a LOT of stability thanks to the materials. Although never as popular as many on the list, if you did spot one of these in the wild you knew its owner was VERY serious about golf gear.

True Temper Bi-Matrix

bimatrix Bubba golf shaft

Bi (two) matrix (a surrounding medium or structure). The first and only truly notable shaft to be made from putting two very different and distinct pieces together. The bottom portion of the shaft utilizes a steel tip section that serves to add stability and additional weight. This shaft is quirky, which is something that could also be said about Bubba Watson, who has used this shaft for over a decade now in MANY different Ping drivers (although Tiger did give it a go for a short period).

Accra SE-80

ryan palmer accra 5 wood shaft

This shaft might seem like the underdog of the bunch, but if you talk to any longtime club builder and get into “vintage” aftermarket shafts, undoubtedly the Accra SE-80 is going to come up at some point. Originally launched in 2006, the SE-80 combined a very low torque rating with an active tip section to help increase launch—yet feel extremely stable. Even though this shaft design is officially a teenager now, you can still find it in the bag of PGA Tour winner Ryan Palmer, who uses it in a TaylorMade R15 5-wood.
